Arduino-101 Classes Start November 9 from 2 p.m.- 4 p.m.!
What is Arduino?
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for anyone making interactive projects.
Arduino offers such a wide range of adaptability to different design projects and we are here to show you the endless capabilities. It is important to understand this wide range of possibilities to know what exactly can be at your finger tips. We offer a great comprehensive hands on workshop with different focuses on how to use Arduino in architecture, fashion, health, toys, and simple home projects.
Arduino 101 will be a two hour class that introduces you to the Arduino platform, what it’s capable of, and how to get started using it for your projects.
The cost will be: $50 for members and $65 for non-members.
Things we’ll cover: board overview, software explanation, code introduction, introduction to variables, and using the Arduino to make things happen!
We are elated to announce that the laser cutter has arrived! We will be offering classes on designing for Laser Cutting using Inkscape beginning September 26th from 6-9pm! Sign up for the class by click on the following link: Inkscape 101: Vector Artwork and Design for Laser cutting. Inkscape is a free, open source vector drawing and design tool. Unlike bitmap images (digital photos) vector art work can be scaled to any size. In this class you will learn the basics of creating shapes, type layout and drawing lines, with tips about how to best prepare your files for our Laser cutter/engraver.
Eric Renn will be holding tours every Wednesday at 11am*. You can see the huge space we have and get a sense for the different projects, collaborations, and opportunities that you can make happen here. You’re invited!
*If you are unable to make that time, please contact us and we will happily arrange something for you.
Summer Maker Camp at SODO MakerSpace (ages served 7-14) – Will be held on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s from July 8th – August 14, 2014.
STEAM Labs Maker Camp at SODO MakerSpace (1914 Occidental Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134) on Tuesday and Thursday at 1pm – 4pm is an exciting and fun experience on learning by making / tinkering. Youth use their creativity and imagination. With that, it’s a fun filled activity while at the same time learning by working together.
Join young inventors and artists at SoDo MakerSpace and from around the world on Google+ to make awesome projects, go on epic virtual “field trips,” and meet the world’s coolest makers. Maker Camp inspires kids ages 7-14 to embrace their inner maker, get their hands dirty, fix some things, break some things, and have a lot of fun doing it.
✓Week 1: Makers in Motion (July 8th and 10th from 1pm-4pm)
✓Week 2: Art and Design (July 15th and 17th from 1pm-4pm)
Week 3: Fun and Games (July 22nd and 24th from 1pm-4pm)
